- 1⁄2 teaspoon stevia (or 1/2 tsp Splenda)
- 1⁄2 banana
- 1⁄2 cup crushed pineapple in juice
- Preheat oven to 350°F.

I was excited to find a muffin recipe packed with protein, however, these were not very good. They were not very sweet, even though I added 1/4 a cup of raw sugar. ALso, the muffins tasted eggy due to the large ammount of eggs called for. I won't be making these again. Sorry!!
This was exactly what I was looking for! It is FULL of healthy foods, fibers, and protiens. Perfect as a mid day pick me up for me and my children at school. it is not a cake muffin, but is tasty and rewarding. I use it to replace store-bought granola bars that are full of fat and sugar and have 0 protien which is so important for my vegitarian child.
This is really difficult to rate because this is REAL food! I took the previous reviewer's recommendation and quadrupled the Splenda -- even that can be doubled! I think it needs salt. This is probably the intense food that Madonna snacks on! I think this appeals to the intense workout personality, the one oblivious to formal structure! It was okay! Can't wait to frost these....
